EU-7 emissions standard: reduce emissions faster with BENTELER and Oberland Mangold
Salzburg/Paderborn, September 23, 2021. The EU 7 emissions standard for internal combustion engines is expected to come into force in 2025. This is a challenge for automotive manufacturers, as a significant reduction in pollutants is again required. BENTELER offers an attractive solution: an electrically heated catalytic converter that reduces pollutant emissions to almost zero during cold starting. Together with Oberland Mangold, the experts in metal substrates and catalyser systems, BENTELER now offers a solution that ensures the exhaust gas treatment system reaches the optimum operating temperature faster.
BENTELER small-overlap crash solution brings more safety for vehicle occupants
Paderborn, September 8, 2021. Frontal collisions in vehicle accidents often result in serious injuries to the occupants. In future, an innovative solution from automotive supplier BENTELER will ensure greater safety in so-called small-overlap crashes. These are accidents that involve an oblique impact of only around 25% of the vehicle. Controlled release of the control arm link helps deflect the vehicle from the obstacle where they would otherwise become locked together. This reduces the force exerted on the occupants in the event of a collision.
